The short, leaning crack with chockstone wedged in the top

Smelly Fox 10/Aug/17 Solo O/S

Excellent route, but over too quickly! Crux felt 5a for sure, quite insecure for the feet and balancy, for the grade, to get round the overlap. Recently cleaned I think.

Fun. Saw what looked like crampon/axe scratch marks on this route. Bloody hell! I thought that only happened at Millstone...... ;)

TR'ed 27th March 2012, lead 23rd April '12. Nice moves up the groove, well protected.

Went for a solo and lost my nerve at the crux so i down climbed to the bottom, would be a bold solo without some beta on the crux. On the other hand it is a great lead.

Got as far as the overhang and bottled it as I wasn't sure what was beyond the overhang for my hands - gutted as when I eventually went up (after Dougie completed the climb on my gear) there was a massive flake. Must grow a bigger set of kahunas!

is this the one with the layback? I think I did it ...

What a great route, very short and overhung then an easy solo of top but plenty of gear if you want it. Climb highlt protectable with large nuts and cams 1-3 size.

Absolutely laced it Wasps nest underneith the overhang half way up should've added a few points to the climb.
